Self-Evident

After the skin-crawling exploitation of black voters in Mississippi, the GOP’s current leadership wing gives a second demonstration, this time in Virginia, of just how committed they are to “a big tent,” or to the GOP’s vitality in general. The Senate majority matters, the House majority matters. But this party’s leadership is infested with the same disregard for Washington’s intended purpose as any Clintonian.

Third parties fail. But what cost does remaining aligned with this generation of GOP leadership take from the cause of liberty and transparency?

Recall, last week Eric Cantor said: “Of course I’ll vote for David Brat … I want a Republican to hold this seat.” Video:

This week? He sends Ray Allen — read anything I’ve published at PJM the last few months for background on this Tammany Hall-style thug — to proxy a budget vote for the seat Cantor really really earnestly hopes the GOP holds. On the next page is  local Virginia blogger and grassroots organizer Jamie Radtke with the details. Do read to the end — as a member of the GOP, of any stripe from McCain to Cruz, I do hope Radtke’s coverage encourages you to reclaim your party from these rent-seeking parasites…

Another RINO and poor loser - the 'R' that denotes Cantor being a republican is a sham as we are now finding out. Just another elite throwing a tantrum for being tossed from what he thinks is his birthright. Can anyone argue convincingly that any difference lay between RINO's and democrats other than the 'r' and the 'd'?

Keep telling me how good things will be when the republicans take over the senate come January. The feckless speaker of the house Boehner hasn't even got the guts to withhold money to fund the outlaw IRS, DHS, EPA and DOJ and has decided to let the courts beat up on the neighborhood bully. What makes anyone think that other than Harry Reid not heading up the senate that anything will change?

Because it won't!

Cantor has proven what I long suspected - he has no class.

This is good coverage, thank you David.

Things like this are why I stopped giving money to the NRC.

A disgusting little man believes he is entitled to power and riches.

MS Republican conservatives and Tea Partiers should sit out the election. RINO Republicans will only provide the bi-partisan fig leaf that the Dems crave to jam unpalatable legislations down our throats. Let them pass a few more Obamacare-like legislation and take the country to the bottom fast. We are getting there anyway.

Eric Cantor is a very small man who deserved the drubbing he received in the polls. He exposed his smallness by looking angry over his loss to David Brat as the voting results rolled in. "Why, that's my seat! How dare Brat win the nomination over me! The Speaker of the House post was rightfully mine!"

The arrogance continued with his failure to man up and congratulate Brat, let alone promise to help him keep the House seat in Republican hands. To this day Cantor has hardly voiced Brat's name in public. Instead, the attitude remains more like, "He took my rightful place! How dare he!"

Make no mistake about what this movement of funds represents: it is a big screw-you gesture to Brat and his supporters. Yeah, the Repub bigwigs in the region voted for it, not Cantor, but you can bet Cantor played a serious role in what happened.

The Seventh District voters made the right choice in the primary. The question now is whether Brat can win, since a Democrat challenger has appeared and the Dems seem to think that now they really have a shot at winning the seat in November. Cantor's and the Republicans' funding games with Brat might have changed the outcome.

Please, all people who care about America, do NOT let Harry Reid/Nancy Pelosi-robots remain in office. Do not stay home on November 4th. Vote Republican. We MUST gain the Senate and retain the House. We MUST become the majority. OK, I understand that everyone is disillusioned and think there is no difference between the parties. I understand and mostly agree. But if we lose in November because Conservatives, Libertarians and fed-up Republicans stay home from the election, this nation is truly over. Once in office, Republicans CAN be pressured to do the right thing. They CAN grow a pair. They won't have to "go along to get along." If we wait until only Conservatives run on a Republican ticket, it will be too late. If you like the idea of Obama winning everything he and his mentors have ever wanted, opt out. If you want to have a chance at changing things, stay engaged and elect Republicans. DON'T LET OBAMA WIN.

"Once in office, Republicans CAN be pressured to do the right thing."

I have asserted this for some time now; having them as the minority party does absolutely no good.

Its sad but not surprising. This was going to be the Cantor campaign war chest. Cantor has no regret for letting the people of his district down. He is only sorry that he can't keep promoting the Establishment agenda in Washington. The first public thing he did was go to a Long Island synagogue to speak to national donors rather than a synagogue in his home district to talk to his constituents. The Dave Brat people will have to raise the money on their own from the grassroots.

Paleo-you've got it all wrong. We're the RINOs. The establishment is by definition the true Republican party. The only way people interested in less government and more liberty can have a political party is either by pushing the old guard out or starting a new party. The Republican party as presently constituted exists to increase profits for the leadership's pals. The challenge for us is to try to elect the candidates who will do the least damage under the present while simultaneously building the organization to take over the GOP or start a viable new party.

They always say: Follow the money!
Is it any wonder that Cuccinelli lost with party leadership such as this.

It now appears that we have regressed from a two party system to a one party system. The BOGP....big ol gubmint party. Their slogan: "big government in your life for your own good.
The road to tyranny is getting shorter.

Funny, I don't hear anything from Mr. Brat complaining about this stuff ... the man who proclaimed "I am not a Tea Party guy" on the night he won his election.

Mr. Steinberg is just trolling for butt-hurting Tea Partiers who are consumed with "I am a VICTIM!!!!!" whining, moaning, and whimpering, like a bunch of teenaged girls complaining about the other mean girls in middle school. Get over yourselves and man up. Nobody cares about this stuff but you.

Now doesn't this move everybody to "man up" and throw money at trash like this, in the name of the RNC?

You mean guys like Dave Brat, who has and will have nothing to do with this tea party trolling stuff. He's a good guy, deserved to win, and I hope he is a very good Congressman. But he'll likely never stoop to this incessant whining and caterwauling of the far right.

Are these the Republicans who were going to be jeopardized by Ted Cruz' filibuster of Obamacare? These were the ones to protect so they could advance conservatism?
